OpenSSH Channel Code Off by 1

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
Checks for the remote OpenSSH version

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

You are running a version of OpenSSH which is older than 3.1.

Versions prior than 3.1 are vulnerable to an off by one error
that permits local users to gain root access, and it may be
possible for remote users to similarly compromise the daemon
for remote access.

In addition, a vulnerable SSH client may be compromised by
connecting to a malicious SSH daemon that exploits this
vulnerability in the client code, thus compromising the
client system.

Solution : Upgrade to OpenSSH 3.1 or apply the patch for
prior versions. (See: http://www.openssh.org)
